Running a "Trace" on rFactor will give:

setup.cpp 2298: Could not find Hammer_PC_Skin.dds

I made an Hammer_PC_Skin.dds just to quiet that error.

When one has a problem with rFactor, as stated in it's ReadMe.chm file, one can run a "Trace" with the command:
Trace=1,2 or 3

It will generates a file whose default location is UserData/Log/trace.txt
So either adding something like trace=1 to your shortcut's Target or typing the whole thing in a Command Prompt window... navigate to the folder where your rfactor.exe resides first or including the absolute path in your command: "rfactor.exe trace=2"

That trace file... will be full of surprise ;) It will show all kinds of stuff!
It will show you errors in tracks and in cars folders you never thought you had.

One of the error, even from a brand you install, will be:

setup.cpp 2298: Could not find Hammer_PC_Skin.dds

HAMMER_PC.MAS does include a Hammer_PC_Skin.TGA but not a .DDS... An ISI omission?

Many mods are using the Hammer as a Pace Car and a few alerted modders did make their own Hammer_PC_Skin.dds.

I did not copy any of their work, I used the available plugin to open the .TGA files and saved it as a .DDS.

Bingo! Error Gone! And some mods now have a proper Pace Car and not one of the racing car for a Pace Car.

I put this up because I could not find a HAMMER_PC_SKIN.DDS anywhere.

P. -S. Even if it's just a picture... I am not responsible for anything... USE AT YOUR OWN RISK...
HF.

Installation:
Just copy HAMMER_PC_SKIN.DDS to the "rFactor\GameData\Vehicles\PaceCar\Hammer_PC" folder... that's it!
If you have "Multiple rFactor Installs"... start working!
Some mods have their own custom Pace Car... no need for them.
